Pete Kuntz: Climate change is real

The National Academy of Sciences says climate change poses “the most immediate and important threat to human survival.”

How are farms and farmers dealing with climate change?

Agriculture may well be one of the industries hardest hit by the effects of global warming.

Earth Talk: How long have we known about human-caused global warming?

It wasn’t until 1995 that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gave a definitive statement that humans are responsible for post-industrial global warming.


Have any wildlife species gone extinct already as a result of global warming?

Global warming is definitely already taking its toll on wildlife around the world. Rising temperatures are changing weather from pole to pole.


How is global warming impacting the world’s penguins?

Not surprisingly, penguins—those cute and quirky flightless birds of the Southern Hemisphere—are in deep trouble as a result of reckless human activity.

No sidelines in fight against climate change

The first Earth Day was intended to be a college campus teach-in. It soon spread to every community and city across the United States.


Earth Talk: Why is the Arctic such a crucial area to focus on in efforts to stem global warming?

The image of a polar bear standing on a shrinking iceberg has become one of the most iconic symbols of global warming, yet few of us realize just how important the Arctic’s ice is.


Environment Virginia report assesses impact of global warming on weather

Most Virginia counties have recently been affected by weather disaster, impacting residents and state landmarks
In Virginia, 91% of residents live in cities or counties affected recently by weather-related disasters, according to new interactive map using data from the federal government.

On climate, be skeptical of the profiteers of doom

“Global warming has not stopped.” In fact, though a third of Man’s influence on climate has happened since 1997, the least-squares linear-regression trends on the UAH and RSS satellite records show no global warming for 18 years 5 months and 18 years 7 months respectively. The pause in global warming is old enough to vote.

EPA skips important climate conference

Over the past 20 years, the American government has spent millions of dollars sending representatives to United Nations climate change conferences. While the public are advised to walk, bicycle, and take the bus more to cut back on greenhouse gas emissions, hundreds of civil servants have enjoyed tax payer funded flights to exotic locations across the globe to take part in U.N. negotiations to ‘save the climate.’

Letter from the overaggressive volunteer on climate change

I wrote a letter to this newspaper recently pointing out that Harris’ climate change denial pseudoscience is clandestinely funded by fossil fuel corporations.


letter

Letter writer gets it wrong on climate change questions

Pete Kuntz’s letter smearing Tom Harris repeated the false Greenpeace accusation that astrophysicist Willie Soon“got caught secretly taking over a million dollars from oil corporations for his climate science denial services and lying about it.” Dead wrong.


Citizens’ Climate Lobby founder must rein in overaggressive volunteers

At stake are trillions of dollars, countless jobs, the security of our energy supply, and, if people like Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) founder and president, Marshall Saunders, are right, the fate of the global environment itself.


letter

Letter: DeSmogBlog is unreliable source on climate change

The letter by Pete Kuntz attacking Tom Harris is based mostly on misinformation from the notorious smear-blog DeSmogBlog. Desmogblog is a completely unreliable source, founded and funded by a criminal convicted of illegal Internet gambling operations and money-laundering and run by a for-profit PR firm in Vancouver, Canada, with clients who benefit from fears about global warming.


Where are the best places to live if global warming gets the best of us?

If temperatures continue to rise in the face of human-induced global warming as climatologists expect, some of the world’s most populous areas could become uninhabitable.


Are we past the point of no return on climate change?

While we may not yet have reached the point of no return—when no amount of cutbacks on greenhouse gas emissions will save us from potentially catastrophic global warming—climate scientists warn we may be getting awfully close.


Global climate agreement in the works

A legally binding and universal agreement limiting carbon emissions to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius—has been elusive to date, but environmentalists remain optimistic that 21 could be their lucky number.


New report urges long-term view, greater margin of safety in planning for sea level rise

On the eve of a Federal Emergency Management Agency meeting in Norfolk on flood risk management, a new report by the Sierra Club warns that sea level rise is accelerating and that greater precautions should be taken in planning for growth along the coast.


Seeding our oceans

Ocean fertilization is a technique whereby swaths of ocean are “seeded” with iron to promote the growth of phytoplankton (microscopic plants that form the base of the marine food chain), and is one of several promising geo-engineering techniques that could help mitigate global warming.


Keystone XL will not be approved any time soon

Keystone XL pipeline supporters want to facilitate expansion of Canada’s oil sands, a critically important energy resource for North America, by encouraging the expansion of important arteries such as Keystone to bring crude oil to refineries in the United States.


Divestment and fossil fuels

The climate movement has embraced divestment—that is, ditching stocks, bonds or investment funds deemed unethical or morally ambiguous—given how effective the tactic was in helping topple Apartheid in South Africa by shaming the companies still willing to do business there.


Veteran peacebuilder discusses global climate change as a destabilizing social and political threat

Global climate change and human conflict are two different problems, dealt with by different groups, right? Wrong. In fact, the United States military combats terrorism and climate change. Both are huge threats to national security.


Scientific fraud underlies global warming scare

Why is it that when politicians make basic science mistakes in support of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming, no government agency or university representative corrects them? It is not as if such errors are rare; they are happening all the time.


Save the Earth: It’s the only planet with chocolate?

A witty sign showing up at climate rallies proclaims: “Save the Earth – It’s the only planet with chocolate!”, and for good reason. The severe weather, extreme temperatures and irregular rainfall associated with global warming is more pronounced in the tropical regions where cocoa is cultivated from West Africa to Indonesia to South and Central America.


NOAA and NASA lied on temperature records

Last week NOAA headlined their home page, “It’s official: 2014 was Earth’s warmest year on record.” NASA proclaimed in their January 16th news release video, “2014 was the hottest year on record.” But these announcements are effectively lies.
